Andy Cullen’s True Strength training series: Back workout

In the fourth video in his True Strength training series, Optimum Nutrition athlete Andy Cullen goes through the exercises that make up his back workout.

Before starting any workout, it is absolutely imperative that you warm up properly first. For example, I warm up for five minutes on the cross-trainer at a steady pace to warm up my body and get my blood flowing.


When training my upper body, I find that it’s crucial for me to warm up my joints, especially my shoulders, as most people who go to the gym regularly will encounter shoulder difficulty at some point if they don’t warm up adequately before exercise.
